OnePlus 5 Model Number Shows Up in Chinese Certification Page
You may have thought the recent OnePlus 5 spec rumors were fake due to them skipping over the OnePlus 4. While those spec rumors may be fake, and we’ll talk about those here too, it looks as if the next flagship smartphone from OnePlus will actually be called the OnePlus 5. For those who are unaware, this is likely due to Chinese culture, in which the number 4 is bad luck (similarly to how Americans feel the number 13 is unlucky) and it is generally avoided if possible.
We’re used to OnePlus using model numbers like A1000, A2000 and A3000 so when A5000 showed up in China’s Radio Regulation Authority database, it made people pay attention. The certification database entry doesn’t reveal much in terms of specs, but it does show what this specific model will have in terms of wireless and cellular capabilities.
As mentioned, there have been some rumors surrounding what type of hardware will be used in the upcoming OnePlus 5. Publications have talked about a 1440p display, 6/8GB of RAM, 7mm thin body, and the Snapdragon 835 SoC. They’ve also mentioned a 3,000mAh capacity battery, and a 16MP front-facing camera paired with a 23MP camera on the back of the phone as well. We never published those rumored specs because we have yet to be given a reason to believe they’re actually legit.
They very well may be real, but until we hear something from a reliable source, we tend to avoid rumors like this. OnePlus has been rumored to use a 1440p display since the OnePlus 2 and it just hasn’t happened yet. The OnePlus 5 could be their first time doing so, but we’ll just have to wait and see what the company announces.Via: Phoneranx Source: Sohu
